So I almost sold my Elite standard the other day, but thankfully came to my senses after it spent a couple days on craigslist and the classifieds here.

I have never been able to capture how nice this guitar is in pictures. Last night I pulled the pickguard off just to see if that would help me get a nice shot. I took a few pics this a.m. and thought I would share. I left one shot with the pickguard on. I'm thinking I'm going to leave the guard off for a while.

PG off for sure!

Solid colors and GT's are fine with the PG, but any nice wood top should be out for all to enjoy!

Good move. :applause:

I'll give you one HUNDRED dollars for it.

I have the same guitar and same year. Welcome to the club! How does she play?

Here's mine on the right. I had Seymour Duncans jb/59 pickups installed. Imo, the stock pickups were the only thing lacking.

^^^^^^^^^^^Yes indeed. The mineral streaks and "imperfections" give 'em so much character. So much more interesting than a flamey top!

Couldn't agree more, the problem is every time a really pretty one comes up for sale I have to suppress the urge to splash the cash. :cool:
